At Olde Providence, he spent time with Brenda Culbertson (General Manager) and John Meyer (Director). John Meyer is the Pro of the Year for 2013. We are excited to partner with Olde Providence Racquet Club and continue our mission to grow the sport.
A Weekend of POC in Charleston, SC
Lenny, our Founder and President, spent time on the courts with great coaches and students. First, he went to Creekside in Mount Pleasant, SC. He shared our NEW Point of Contact Footwork Drills with JoAnn Lee’s students. JoAnn is the owner and Director of Creekside Tennis. He really enjoyed his time there!
Next, he took a little drive over to Daniel Island Club on Daniel Island, SC. On court with Ben Cook’s students, the students were able to hit 2400 balls in just 45 minutes, and remember….NO BALL PICK UP! The students were very excited to tell Lenny how they immediately felt the difference in their balance and agility.
They were thrilled to be hitting the Sweet Spot with cleaner hits after training!

Lenny was invited to spend a day with Roger Dowdeswell (former World Tour player), his coaches, and students at Hampton Racquet.
Lenny shared Point of Contact Training Drills with the Eye Coach. The students loved the constant movement and the coaches loved that no student was standing in line waiting their turn!
